About the Owner of Mixed Martial Arts Lifestyle (MMAL)

My purpose is to help people understand that martial arts is about bringing positivity towards an individual’s life & is more than just a self-defensive sport.

About The Owner:

Hi there! I’m Austin, martial artist, competitor, blogger & owner of the Mixed Martial Arts Lifestyle (MMAL) blog. Martial Arts have been one of my biggest passions since I was 13 years old, which has made a big impact in my life!  Ever since I found martial arts, I became obsessed with the science behind each self-defensive art & the health benefits it brings. 

As the years go by, my passion for it has lead me to starting this blog. I have spent most of my life learning different types of disciplines in my martial arts journey. To find out more about what martial arts brings in life, read all about it here on Mixed Martial Arts Lifestyle (MMAL).

Why I Created Mixed Martial Arts Lifestyle (MMAL)

I created Mixed Martial Arts Lifestyle (MMAL) to help people new to martial arts understand that it is more than just a self-defensive sport. Martial arts may strengthen a person both physically & mentally, but it also teaches them to develop their character to overcome obstacles in life. 

Since I have achieved these benefits, hopefully, I can inspire readers to find a discipline they would be good in to help build themselves.
